With DJ:

Nullsleep is the alias of Jeremiah Johnson, an electronic musician whose style is best described as post-cyberpunk: a combination of distorted synthpop, electro, and industrial produced with repurposed low-bit electronics. His approach embraces the politics of appropriation, leveraged limitations, destructive process and data artifacts. The resulting sound is a wall of digital noise, driven by a deep pulsing beat, that is inevitably torn apart in a cascade of glitches and drones emanating from cheap plastic devices.

In 1999 Nullsleep cofounded 8bitpeoples, a collective of artists interested in the audio-visual aesthetics of early home computers and video game consoles. He has since released a number of recordings through 8bitpeoples, Astralwerks, Aniplex and others. Based in New York City, Nullsleep has performed over 150 shows throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including successful world tours in 2006 and 2009.
